Call for Essays on Redefining "Britishness" in Contemporary British Literature and Culture. Publication Deadline: 1 June 2009

Call for Essays on Redefining "Britishness" in Contemporary British Literature and Culture

Publication Deadline: 2009-06-01

This essay collection seeks to respond to such questions and to understand the experiences of migrant generations and those of contemporary Britons of all ethnicities. The collection will examine the competing discourses around notions of national identity and the ways contemporary literature grapples with these and related ideas. Contributions dealing with other cultural representations of contemporary Britishness, such as film and other media and popular culture, are also welcome. While all proposals about topics after WWII will be considered, a major focus of the collection is on more recent contemporary literature and culture.

Please send proposals of 500 1500 words and a brief biographical note to Dr. Susan Alice Fischer at safischer@mac.com by 1 June 2009. A  preliminary review will take place in early June and essays of selected proposals will be due by 1 September 2009. A respected academic press has already expressed keen interest in publishing the collection, though no promise of publication or contract can be issued until final texts have been accepted.
